Following memorandum of understanding signing between Wikimedia Indonesia and Museum Uang Sumatera in June 2019, the digitization activities started in August 2019. In five days (from August 5 to 9, 2019), we scanned and photographed various forms of old banknotes, issued during 1910s until 1960s, from the museum's collection. There are tens of banknotes and coins digitized. We expected to upload them to Wikimedia Commons this September.
Digitization is in action…

Introduction to structured data on Commons and ISA workshop
On August 30, 2019, Wikimedia Indonesia organized Wikimedia Commons, Structured data on Commons, as well as Information Structured Acceleration (ISA) workshop. This event was intended to introduce how to contribute in Wikimedia Commons and learn the licenses used in Wikimedia Commons. As part of GLAM 2019, we also expanded the event to introduce structured data on Commons, and utilized ISA tool to add depicts and captions to the images under Wiki Cinta Budaya 2018 and Wiki Loves Earth 2019 in Indonesia.
More than 400 participants' contributions were recorded on that day. See Wikimedia Indonesia's Facebook post for more details.
